New asphalt will replace the 14-year-old rutting and deteriorating one over the next few months along I-82 between Selah and Union Gap.

The project starts Monday night, July 8, and will be performed at night until it is complete sometime in mid-September, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

Crews will begin repaving I-82 at US 12 from the Twin Bridges east of Selah to the Valley Mall Boulevard interchange near Union Gap, then the ramps at Yakima Avenue / I-82 Interchange and then the US 12 / I-82 Interchange near North First Street.

During the paving, drivers will be restricted to one lane in each direction from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. and the ramps near the Yakima Avenue and North First Street exits may close at times.

Motorcyclists are encouraged to use extreme caution or use alternate routes as portions of the highway will have rough surfaces while the speed limit through the work zone will remain 60 mph.

Weekly construction updates of the $3.8 million preservation project are at the transportation website:
